I am a licensed Psychologist who provides individual therapy to women of all ages in my private practice called "Therapy For Women." I provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment in which to help you deal with the challenges or difficulties you are experiencing in your life. Issues that I am passionate about helping women with include: depression, anxiety, improving relationships, parenting, self-esteem, breast cancer, pregnancy loss/infertility, and life transitions. I will work with you to identify goals that are in line with your uniques needs and values.
During those times in your life that issues seem overwhelming and resolution never seems to come, is the time to seek a therapist who works with you to gain control with a focused, solution oriented perspective. The anxiety that builds from repeated stress can leave a person feeling drained especially when you feel you have tried everything to "make it right". Experienced with adults who are having trouble maintaining their frustration which leads to anger issues and relationship issues, I have taught anger management classes in an agency setting as well as parenting classes to those involved in custody issues.
My expertise is informed by more than 10 years in clinical practice as well as over 25 years in Human Service Practice skills. I am very compassionate and value the capacity for individuals to reach their highest desires. When conflicts are experienced in life, they can certainly be immobilizing. It is at this turning point when having a professional "outside voice" that can listen, provide guidance in a non-judgmental setting, and assist with making healthy choices will become an asset to you.

You seem to have it all together on the outside. You live by the golden rule, working hard, extending compassion and taking care of everyone but yourself. You conditioned yourself to say “I am fine” when you know you are not. You feel stuck in negative cycles and perhaps distract yourself from uncomfortable feelings by over working, shopping or drinking too much. You are constantly in survival mode, feeling stressed, anxious, tired, confused and overwhelmed.
Accepting New Clients. Welcome. I have always been drawn to assisting others with recognizing their true potential, and empowering them to use their innate strengths to achieve it. I consider it an honor and privilege as a therapist, to work with people who have the desire to be genuinely happy with their lives and to assist them with achieving their true happiness. I’ve always been curious of people’s individual stories, which is why I believe that therapy cannot be “one-size-fits-all.” Everyone has a unique story that is special to them, and therefore my approach in therapy is tailored to best suit my clients’ specific needs.
Going to a therapist can be one of the most difficult things that a person may have to do. In some cases, this is due to an ongoing mental health issue. Some people have suffered through a trauma or adjustment period, and others just need someone that they can talk to. Regardless of what brings you to therapy, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and trusting of the therapist that you chose. I utilize a client-focused and strengths based approach to address the individual needs of my clients.

With my ability to gain rapport and target client's goals quickly, I help individuals attain a better quality of life through self acceptance, but at the same time, make changes in order to achieve their personal goals.
